On Jeogori, and Stories About Materials
October 2016 – November 2016
The exhibition seeks new possibilities for traditional Korean clothing by combining new materials with traditional design, and traditional materials with contemporary design. Also highlighted at this exhibition are materials used for hanbok that embrace both tradition and modernity. Both artisans of traditional clothing and contemporary designers focused on diverse materials: some materials showing beauty intrinsic in traditional fabrics and others serving as a bridge connecting traditional and modern clothing. Bringing together practicality and the aesthetic beauty inherent to hanbok should yield excellent possibilities for traditional clothes worn through the ages.
